    Feel free to pm me if you want to chat..i can share the tips I learnt there.
    Dh was there with me, he also spoke to the child health nurse but she still refused to do a referral till ive tried their 'one size fits all' strategies for 2 weeks. She said Ellen Barron will just reject the referral otherwise. So it sounds like theres no other option.

    All I can say is no wonder so many women have PND - you ask for help & no-one wants to know. But I bet they'd all be going 'oh my god how did that happen, how did she get so bad?' if I completely lost the plot.

    You poor thing! Those nurses can be so hopeless!!! Is there a free call number to them and just tell them you have a 6 month old who is a nightmare to get to sleep, how can you go about getting a referral. Don't tell them you have already been to see one of their nurses, just see what they say.

    I'd also ring every GP office you can easily get to and once you get an appointment demand a referral. Those referral 'rules' the nurse gave you sound like a load of cr@p to me. If you still get turned away tell them you are about to have a nervous breakdown if you can't get into sleep school and refuse to leave. Heck even give them a link to all of your threads - they clearly show you've tried everything and you're at the end of your teather.

    I asked for help with dd1 to no avail. She is now 9. We only got her sleep issues under control because she went through a bed wetting program.

    I have been asking for help with dd2 since she was about 3 months old. I get told she is normal. It is normal for some kids not to sleep through. Every health nurse appointment and Dr appointment I have had I have mentioned her sleep issues. I even rang a sleep school up and they wouldn't help. She just turned 3 and I had to almost beg for them to give us a referral for ent specialist to get her adenoids looked at a couple months ago.
    I agree with you. No one wants to help until it is too late. Then when the mother is facing manslaughter or murder charges they say she should have just asked for help. Bold statement but that's how it seems and feels for me.

    @heartstringz, have you got private health insurance?

    If so, google The Brisbane Nurture Centre

    You can go to your GP to get a referral for Ellen Baron too...forget the child health nurse?

    Do you have a psychologist/psychiatrist who knows what you're going through?

    Albert my phi doesnt pay boarding fees & when I called the nurture centre they said they admit the baby & the mother is a boarder. So it would cost an absolute fortune & we dont have the money. Also last time I rang them their waiting list was longer than Ellen Barron's so I doubt id get in before May.

    I cant get in with my gp for a referral & I dont see the point of going to a random gp ive never seen before who probably wont give me a referral because they know nothing about me or what has been happening.

    Have you tried calling your clinic and asking to be put on the cancellation list to see your GP as it is an urgent matter, @heartstringz?

    Coming back to reply later @heartstringz. I was told it would take a while too but it all depends on the situation. I got in within 2 weeks. You will be able to as well, if you're not coping.

    Waiting to see a Dr, they open at 7 and that's when the first dr is supposed to start, it's now 7:07am and no sign of her. She does this every time I come before work, why do I always need to see a Dr on her early start day :-( plus even though I got here before 7, there are already 2 people in front of me so I'm probably going to be late to work.

    The referral is for bub to go to sleep school, not you, so you could get a referral at his needle appointment. You could even get your psych to write a letter to your GP stating how urgent it is that you get a sleep school referral. The GP can't ignore that, even if it's not 'your' referral, especially if your psych states the impact on your mental health. The GP would be negligent to turn you away
